Spring in St. Cast

  • 5 of 5

We had searched for the perfect place to spend time in Brittany and this house was it! The views and outdoor space gave you a feeling of truly being in the country but we were quite near town so shopping was easy. We not only visited the nearby towns but also were able to visit other areas such as Dinan, Mont St. Michel and Cancale without having to stay in hotels! The owner was very accommodating and there is every attention to detail. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals including an oyster knife! All of the rooms very spacious and nicely decorated. Bertrand was always available via email and phone to answer any of our questions so it was nice to meet both he and his wife as we were leaving. They are delightful!

Wonderful week in Brittany

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful week at this peaceful and comfortable home with beautiful views of the water. Home was very clean and well-equipped. It was perfect for two couples for the week. We cooked, read, and in general relaxed. Description was entirely accurate and very well-documented by the pictures that Bertrand, the owner, sent. Much information was provided in the house about nearby restaurants and tourist attractions. Location was close to grocery and town of St. Cast. Town is delightful. We enjoyed eating ice cream every afternoon and watching children play in town square. Many good restaurants in the area including best grilled fish I've ever eaten. Relationship with owner was wonderful -- we even met in Paris for dinner on our way home. Definitely will return when our travels next take us to Brittany.

Magnificent Sea Views

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect especially for a base location in Brittany. It is in a tranquil yet beautiful location near many interesting villages and towns. St. Cast le Guildo offers everything with many extremely nice restaurants and shops. The beaches are amazing, the historical ruins fascinating and the people are warm and hospitable. The house is beautifully kept and very well equipped with everything you would need for a wonderful stay. It is extremely neat and in excellent condition for a vacation house. Its location is ideal for going to nearby attractions like Mont St. Michel, Quimper, the beaches of Normandy and, one of our favorite seaside towns famous for its Oysters, Cancale.

The owners are very lovely and more than willing to help make your vacation special by providing excellent help and information about the area. They have provided detailed information books in the house to help make your vacation stay a pleasant one. Because we do not speak fluent French, they were extremely helpful to us and translated to others when necessary by phone. You will love this very comfortable house in this beautiful area of Brittany!

Comfortable house with sea view

  • 4 of 5

We 2 adults and 2 children (7 and 9) spend one week in April in this house.

It is very calm and has a wonderful sea view.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook. There is everything you need.

Our children enjoyed the garden and we made trips to St.Malo, Dinard, Dinan etc.

The sea is near and you can leave the car near the house.

The only thing we missed was a comfortable place to sit in the living room (there is only one sofa).

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place if you are looking to make holidays in a lovely area, close to the beach with lots of space for the family!

House and garden are in great shape, ideal for children (ours loved it here), the beach is less than 3 minutes by car, not overcrowded, again lots of space (and sand...) for the kids.

Saint Cast and surroundings are really nice, there is lots to see if you don't want to spend your days on the beach.

Laura and Betrand, the landlords are lovely, it was a pleasure to deal with them!

We would love to stay here in 2012 again!!!
